Glass Polishing Kit for all Types of Glass, Removes Surface Marks, Water Damage - DIY Repair used with electric drill

5.0 out of 5 stars Works better than described, April 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had some scratches in my windshield (from cleaning one part with a scrub pad). Every windshield repair company told me it would have to be replaced, that it couldn't be repaired. I ordered this kit, and the instructions said that it could take up to an hour to repolish the glass. After only five minutes of use, the scratches were reduced enough that they weren't distracting any more. I'm using it now on other scratches on my windows, and it consistently removes the scratches in a reasonable length of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Might even be too bright, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
LED lights have made huge strides in the past three years. I have a 14W LED lamp from three years ago, and it puts out about 800 lm (about as bright as a 60 W bulb). This one produces 1400 lm, at least as bright as a 100 W bulb. Given the expected lifetime of these bulbs, 20-50 times as long as an incandescent bulb and 10 times as long as a compact fluorescent (at least in my experience), this bulb is cheap at the apparently high price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best bond yet, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I accept those who put Goldfinger or Casino Royale over this one, but it's my favorite. In his three movies, Daniel Craig's Bond has grown from a new 00 agent to one who is older, possibly past his prime. Bond is more human in this movie, and yet still manages to come out on top. There are some cool surprises and some sad ones, but nothing matches the interaction between Bond (Daniel Craig) and Silva (Javier Bardem), with the emotional content all tied to M (Judi Dench).

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting ending to a good series, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The final chapter in the Twilight saga...I know not everyone liked the movies (or the books), but I loved both. The first four movies followed the first 3-1/2 books very closely. This one deviated more from the book (the second half of the last book) than the others; those who have read the books will know that the climactic scene would have been virtually impossible to film. I felt it could have been handled with a little less surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent replacement ear cushions, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These were extremely easy to replace. They are slightly thinner than the cushions that came with my original earphones, but the padding is slightly firmer so they are just as comfortable. The sound is as good as with the originals. I hope they last a long time (the originals lasted over seven years).

5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant and useful, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered this set because I knew it would look good in my spare bathroom. Not only does it make the bathroom more elegant, the faucets are easy to use and have a very large range (turn nearly a full 180 degrees between off and full on), giving them better control over the water flow. I'm very happy with this faucet set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the price, March 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These binoculars have surprisingly good optics and are reasonably compact for the price. When they arrived, the controls were a little tight, but using them cleared up that problem. They provide an upright image, which is very helpful for non-astronomical use. One thing to consider is that they are *not* zoom binoculars, which is suggested by one review I read. Another review marked them down as not useful for narrowly-spaced eyes. My eyes are a little narrowly spaced at 2.5 inches; the binoculars easily squeeze down to 2.25 inches. Teenagers and children, and some adults, may have eye spacing less than this; if so, avoid these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than an ice pack, July 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The DonJoy Iceman Wrap-On Shoulder Pad is part of the Donjoy Iceman cold therapy system, which makes it possible to attach a cold pad to your shoulder securely and adjust the temperature from freezing to ambient. It will hold that temperature for a long time. This particular pad makes it possible to cool your entire shoulder at once (it also works well on my knee). The two-section design lets you determine exactly where to put the cold pad and the three elastic straps let you attach it around your arm and/or around your body.

4.0 out of 5 stars Improved Ace-type bandage, July 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Medline Matrix Elastic Bandages - Non-Sterile - 6" x 5 yards - Model MDS087006LFH is an improvement over the Ace bandage with elastic, in that it has velcro at both ends. This makes it easier to attach two bandages together, and ensures that the first wrap around (in my case, around my knee) is stable. This bandage is free of Latex (for those who are sensitive to it). Like all other elastic bandages, its length (5 yards) is when it is fully stretched, nearly three times its length at rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars "All" 22 of the 23 major Bond movies, July 11, 2012

Since people are asking about which movies are included, I did some internet research. The list of movies is:
1. Dr. No*
2. From Russia with Love*
3. Goldfinger*
4. Thunderball*
5. You Only Live Twice
6. On Her Majesty's Secret Service
7. Diamonds Are Forever
8. Live and Let Die*
9. The Man with the Golden Gun*
10. The Spy Who Loved Me
11. Moonraker*
12. For Your Eyes Only*
13. Octopussy*
14. A View to a Kill
15. The Living Daylights
16. Licence to Kill*
17. Goldeneye
18. Tomorrow Never Dies
19. The World is Not Enough*
20. Die Another Day*
21. Casino Royale*
22. Quantum of Solace*

*Already available on Blu-Ray

Never Say Never Again is not included since it is not part of the "series," being produced independently. Likewise the David Niven spoof of Casino Royale. Also, there was a British TV version of Casino Royale that is not included.
